There is no end to the Turkish provocations against Greece, with Rear Admiral Panagiotis Pastouseas warning.
Greek-Turkish: Turkey added yet another provocative action to the long list of challenges, by banning the entry of the governor of Central Macedonia, Apostolos Tzitzikostas.
A little over 24 hours after Ibrahim Kalin’s new incendiary statements, this time the moment has come to reach the limits of a diplomatic episode.
In fact, vice admiral Panagiotis Pastouseas, speaking on the “Mega Weekend” show, noted that Turkey with this move was aiming at both Greece and Europe.
“We must be prepared for the worst scenario, whether we are in a relaxed period or we are in a period when the tension has “hit the red”” he added, while estimating that Turkey will not peak the tension with an armed conflict.
Regarding the 12 miles, Professor Sotiris Serbos stated that there must be an overall strategy regarding the expansion of territorial waters.
“Turkey has shown what it wants, but it is not clear what we want. But this should not be done as a reaction against Turkey,” he explained.
Mr. Pastouseas, continuing his position, emphasized that the extension of 12 nautical miles would “cost” Turkey.
“We must turn the threat of casus belli into a threat to Turkey, that is, we must tell it decisively that the next step it will take must be thought through very carefully,” concluded the vice admiral.
All this, of course, while the Secretary General of NATO, Jens Stoltenberg, “pulls the ear” of Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who accepts one remark after another.
